I looked it up and found that fommes fomentaritus are usually found growing on a birch. This could possibly be a Ganoderma applanatum as it seems to be a beech tree. also it says that they bruise brown and this seems to be the case as it was damaged in the picture. Im not sure though and probably wrong.

If you remove the last two pictures..

.. I can propose a name on the remaining species: Fomes fomentarius, often with a weird growth on beech.
